IT has been, throughout, the effort of the editors to prepare a
book representative of the new, the ever growing, and the ever
expanding teacher training school at Framingham. The de-
partures from time-honored traditions are many; but this is a
year to be marked in the history of Framingham Normal School
by such departures as the changing of the name to Teachers Col-
lege. Furthermore, we have attempted to make the book more in-
teresting to alumnae of the College by devoting more space to
news of former graduates.
We sincerely hope that the book will prove interesting to all
who read its pages; also that it will be a credit to the school whose
influences and spirit have helped to mould our characters during
the best years of our lives.

"... for loyalty arises only through conscious-
ness of participation in the common life and on
such a level of living as to induce the wish

difference between mechanical unity and demo-

To you, my friends in the class of 1932
"After all, the worthwhile things of life remain
the same regardless of changing social condi-
tions. A refined home, an appreciation of Art.
Music and Literature, with loving children
around you should be a worthy goal for any
person. Other things sink into nothingness com-
pared to these."
F. W. RlED.

THEN AND NOW
WE are all given to taking for granted the conveniences of modern life, forget-
ting that the steam engine, the electric light, the department store and the
hospital are of comparatively recent origin. Corresponding cultural advances,
during the past decades, have kept pace with the rapid developments of industry and
science. In this country education is no longer considered a privilege for the minority.
On the contrary, progressive people have made the opportunities for education open to
all, regardless of color, creed, or nationality.
It is our purpose here, to consider the progress made in the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts in regard to the education of teachers. Since the day of Horace Mann and
the beginnings of State Normal School training at Lexington and Barre, in the year
1839, Massachusetts has improved steadily the process of education of teachers, as well
as educational matters generally. The original two year courses have developed to three
year courses. Beginning with the year 1922, the Household Arts course developed to
one of four years in length, granting its graduates a degree of Bachelor of Science in
Education. Now, all three year courses are becoming four year courses, offering a degree.
In view of this fact, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has declared that the
name "Normal School" shall become a thing of the past and the name "Teachers' Col-
lege" shall take its place. Likewise, the Principal of the Normal School is to become the
President of the College.
This means that not only will there be longer training for students desiring to be
teachers in our public schools, but also that there will be offered curricula which are
more extensive and of higher academic and professional standards. This progress in
educational advance is but another step toward greater dignity and better service from
this important branch of our educational system.
It is indeed with great pleasure that the Staff present THE DIAL of 1932 as the first
year book of the State Teachers College at Framingham, with President Bagnall as its

JONATHAN MAYNARD SCHOOL
The Jonathan Maynard Training School is a vital part of the Framingham
Teachers College. Both the Household Arts and Elementary girls have part of their
practice teaching here. The Household Arts girls receive training in the foods and
clothing classes of grades V to VIII. The Elementary Department has experience in the
entire eight grades, working with the various subjects.
The Training School will be a bright spot in our memories of F. T. C. Each
day there brought new and interesting experiences. It did not take long for us to feel a
part of this group which created for us a friendly, wholesome atmosphere.
We remember those lessons, carefully prepared, to be taught under the helpful
supervision of Mr. Archibald, Miss Taylor, Miss Kingman, and Miss Allan for the
Elementarys, and Miss Hall and Miss Coss for the H. A.'s. Some of us were fortunate
to have Miss Gerritson, Miss Carter, or Mr. Donor give assistance. How much simpler
everything became with a prudent hint or suggestion from one of these supervisors!
Sympathy and guidance were surely found on every side.
We truly owe much to the faculty of the Jonathan Maynard School for the many
opportunities offered us and the valuable assistance so willingly given; to establish a
firm foundation for our individual parts in the field of teaching.

For, unable to be merely one, she had to be both.

Elected the same officers,
And liked the new way, too.

Meets with approval on all sides:
It's a united point of view.
The Juniors there in Crocker Hall
Just revel in their home made food,
And practice teaching, too.
The Elementary girls of course
Went far and near for training.
Practicing methods tried and true.
We feel that we have started
A better plan for unity
A closer, nearer harmony.
A finer, keener loyalty
To serve us intellectually,
To bind together socially
By making one big family
Of H. A.'s — Elementary.
We are one class as Juniors

Annette Pierce .
A summer of expectations, a longing for the hill,
Curiosity for the freshman; Big Sisters with a will.
September brought the lessons, and Sophomore problems too —
We'll learn it now or never, those things we have to do.
So up and spoke our teachers, "do this for Monday next" —
"A little draft", "a little foods", "some alcohol from your text".
But we've been acclimated — nothing can phase us now,
We eat the foods, skirt the drafts, and drink the alcohol.
Oh, the lessons that they hand us, making work for all our fingers:
Lengthy hours. Bells releasing us and then not a foot that lingers.
Our life should not be dreary — with so much on our mind,
But give me back those minutes — the time I couldn't find.
Some live on the hill top. and get exercise climbing the stairs:
A few work in the dining room, "waiting tables" in pairs.
Others live in the village, each morn the hill they climb,
Twenty-nine after at starting, but they'll be there on time.
A word for all the commuters, they must be counted too,
And if you've ever commuted, you know the things they do.
The rest of us are just sophomores that add to the general confusion.
I'll say no more about it. but let this be my conclusion.

THE WEARING OF THE GREEN
There's a color we are proud to show:
It tells tales of hopes and dreams,
It tells others what they want to know.
"We're freshmen" branded "green" it seems.
And this bit of green is tied fast
To a scrap book held so dear —
A book of memories of the past
That will bring us joy and cheer.
A photo of Peirce our "winter home,"
And theatre stubs by the score.
And as o'er the pages we roam
We find old programs galore.
Our recital number stands out so bold,
And the first exam mark in chem,
Dance orders we wouldn't trade for gold —
There's many a tale brought back by them.
Costume parties, teas and plays
And the picnics we did enjoy:
Harvard-Yale week-end — those were the days,
And the "Mock Man" dance — without a boy!
Then perhaps the dearest of them all
Is a snapshot of a pal so true,
And as old times together we recall.
We'll love our green forever anew.

H, Jo, would you think that writing the class history could be such a hard job?
Honestly, I can't even think of an appropriate introduction. Of course we
could say 'We have come to the summit of the hill, etc.,' but somebody said
that in '30. When I think I have a bright idea I find that someone else has said it
"Oh! bother, the introduction! Choris. Do you remember all that happened our
first year at Peirce Hall?"
"Do I remember? How could I forget!"
Those first feverish hours, saying good-bye to our parents and friends — Making
new friends and settling in new surroundings. Those awe-inspiring seniors whom we
gazed upon in reverence! Initiation week, a week of mental anguish for us. but as we
now know, of joy for those seniors.
The acquaintance party in Peirce living room soon broke down any barriers that
might have arisen in our group. We settled into the daily toil with a seriousness that
would have surprised our teachers back in the old home town. Maybe we surprised
October was the date for the "Stu. G" dance, one of the two "man" dances which
the freshmen might attend.
Close on the heels of the "Stu. G" dance came the Hallowe'en party with the
ducking for apples, peanut hunt, fortunes and eerie noises.
Next on the program, and a most talked of event: Harvard- Yale week-end. It
was at this time that our class began to show promise of athletic prowess (of course
you remember that we were well represented on Varsity basketball and hockey) , and
how we showed our "talents" at the banquet.
Christmas came (as it has in many years past, of course) but this time it brought
our dearly beloved friend, Saint Nick, in person. He spent a good part of one evening
with us, and, before departing for the North Woods again, found a gift for each one
of us in his pack.
Elections of Class Officers became an issue of extreme importance in January,
Stunt night was indeed a time for showing ingenuity (believe that's what it was;
anyway, we won the prize) .
Fine Arts Play gave opportunity for showing our dramatic ability.
Sophomore year set us a little apart from the rest as we were "off the hill" in small
groups in our forced abodes (which we "rationalized" into sorority houses). How-
ever, we held our Hallowe'en Party in Crocker basement. Was that a proper place for
a party? Ask anyone who went. Plenty of games and loads and loads to eat. That's
when we tried to make up for all the breakfasts we had missed by not coming up the
hill. It was rumored around that some doughnuts were saved as morning meals for
the next week.
Harvard-Yale again found us well in the foreground. At this time it was noted
that many staunch followers of the Red and the Blue "changed their colors." Of course
one's housemates had nothing to do with this swerving of allegiance!
By the time St. Nick came around again, we were wishing he would raise our
chem. marks about 40% instead of bringing presents, — not that we would refuse a
present at any time, however.
The next social event that loomed on the horizon was Sophomore Prom. What
comment among the upper classmen! Score one for our class. This was an innovation
for sophomores. We believed in being different, so we took our guests to Holland. How
charming the windmill, how gay the tulips, how familiar and friendly the atmosphere,
to say nothing of the Dutch boys and girls, in typical costume, who served delicious
The end of the sophomore year found us losing many dear friends, among them
Dr. and Mrs. Chalmers, who were very dear to us.
Our junior year at Crocker again united us into one big happy family ready to
welcome Mr. and Mrs. Bagnall.
Whoever said dishwashing was the bane of women's existence? Why, it was done
in Crocker with a smile for every dish. Who wouldn't with ice cream in the bargain?
(Of course, we liked cookies, too.)
Teaching was a pleasure and gave us a chance to show someone what we had
learned, such as doing the backstitch and putting the "pop" in popovers. Who could
help loving kiddies. There are times, and yet times do change!
Hallowe'en and Christmas parties were a huge success. Stunt night came again
and with it the banner for our second great success, much to the surprise of all. Our
skit was the "Doll Shop."
April Fool's Day brought the usual pranks, but the climax came at dinner when.
arrayed in gay costumes, we presented to Miss Hall a huge box (and it did not contain
a bunch of celery) .
Crocker was at its prettiest when we revived the colonial days as a background
for our Junior Prom.
Just a little bit of sadness came upon us as we left our dear old Crocker, but the
thought of becoming dignified seniors soon cheered us on our way.
On returning to Framingham, we had to look twice. We were confronted with a
great change. The construction of the new Washington Highway gave the center a
different aspect. Fearing that all of Framingham had been changed, we immediately
sought favorite haunts, and saw with relief that they had still left the reservoir intact.
Freshman week was in the hands of the seniors. Now it was our turn to assert our
authority and. with faces which we kept grim, to dole out tasks for those poor unsus-
Caps and gowns lent us a new dignity but this dignity did not stop us, however,
from becoming basketball "champs" again, a position held by us for four years. Not
only are we basketball champs, but we have had not a few able actresses to make up the
casts of the Fine Arts plays.
Christmas brought us this year the joy of carol singing (in the rain) and a
revival of the good old "spreads" at Crocker.
The Dial Dance, a valentine affair, came in February and originated from our
Sophomore Prom, the one and only such prom in the history of the school.
June Week is upon us with "Pops" Concert, Baccalaureate Sunday, Class Day,
Prom and Commencement — and now we all are wondering where the George Wash-
ington Highway will lead us!

STARTLING RECORDS REVEALED
Modern Excavators Working In Ruins of
Historic Normal School Relate
Modern excavators have been working
in the ruins of a Historic group of build-
ings which seem first to have been called
Normal School and at a later period
Teachers College. Since the earthquake of
2098 little has been done to restore rec-
ords concerning State Education of 200
years ago. The only papers which could
be deciphered were written in 193 2. These
have been compiled by a scientist who is
responsible for this fascinating investiga-
tion. The most recent notes were written
by Green and Auger who were evidently
students in 1932. They seem to be trying
to idealize the hopes and aspirations of
their classmates. We quote from their
"Priscilla, we hope, will some time
have the interest, time and necessary ap-
propriations for the construction of a new
Sophomore Dormitory; it is her aim and
we're all for it.
"Peg Moran is going to astonish the
world with the new 'Chicken Liver Oil'
which is colorless, odorless, tasteless and
nutritious: but it contains all vitamins
from A to Z.
"Gin, Dot and Peg arc travelling the
continent together. Can't you see them'
Paris! London! Berlin! Oh. to be there —
wouldn't you love it? — when they are
"We hope Mildred Heath will be a dean
at a private institution. Questions seem to
go with this position.
"We see Mil Hazard in the Transcon-
tinental Flying Corps: she is also inter-
ested in the theory of flying.
"It is certain that Elie Knox and Phil
Hillman will be successful song-writers.
Elie lands the jazz element while Phil
gives classical touch.
"Kay Rockwood will be our Alumnae
President — still acting as guide and coun-
sellor to those young ladies who seek con-
"Marian Ramsdell will continue her
study of art and will reach her zenith of
artistic ability in a masterpiece called 'Pure
"Clare will rise to heights as an inter-
pretative dancing teacher — her intensive
training at Framingham merits this re-
"And try to imagine the Newton Cir-
cuit touring the country. Outstanding per-
formances will be attributed to the fol-
lowing: Al Winsloe who wallops the
drums: Ruth Crowe who does sensational
tight rope dancing: Eleanor Winters who
handles fan mail, stage men and, of
course, the tightening of the ropes.
"Fascinating true stories will be writ-
ten by Gladys Felton who divides her
time between the switchboard and West-
"There will be from among us two
culinary experts who will give demonstra-
tions in 4-H club work, and these are
none other than Grace Alden and Mary
O'Brien. Grace will do the talking: Mary
"An exclusive gown-shop on Fifth
Avenue will attract us — and no wonder —
it will have a clever business head, Sadie;
a gracious hostess, Jo; a demure propri-
etress, Lois; and Ann who will supply an
atmosphere of wit and humor.
"Bernice's dramatic ability already has
taken a sudden turn toward song. She has
changed her tune from 'Two Loves Have
V to 'One Alone'."
Some newspaper clippings dated 1942
were found, in a folder, which, no doubt,
can be traced to a member of the faculty
who was still interested in the wandering
class of 193 2. They read as follows: —
"St. Petersburg, Florida. — 'Marian
Cragg was seen recently on a tour of the
South. It is said that she prefers St. Peters-
burg. Her guide and constant companion
is — ' — the rest of this is illegible."
"Worcester, Mass. — 'Our favorite au-
thor has at last published the book we
have been waiting for. Its alluring title is
7 000 Ways to Cook for a Husband and
1000 Ways to Keep Him by Deb Coffin'."
"Wrentham, Mass. — 'Florence Gates
and Lil Hoffman have accepted positions
as joint supervisors of Biology at F. S.
T. C. They prepare agar in bright col-
ored petri dishes which harmonize with
the environment or moods of experi-
"Lake Placid, N. Y. — 'Miss Phyllis
Lindstrom of Worcester, Mass., in her in-
conspicuous way, has won the admiration
of her Olympic audiences. Her remarkable
genius in athletics and her personality have
gained her this honor'."
"Boston, Mass. — 'A new business firm
has opened on Wall Street, under the aus-
pices of McEnaney and Holland. (They
share a Remingwood Typewriter. What
Dot misses Tre hits'."
"Jacksonville, Illinois. — 'This section
of the country is stormed by the words of
a famous orator, Miss K. Flinn. She in-
troduces her address by a lilting theme
song Punctuality versus Originality'."
"Framingham, Mass. — 'The Toledo-
Lawrence Orchestra is invited to play at
Framingham for one week. The personnel
of this organization is: — Stringed Instru-
ments: Helen Conley, Sylvia Leavitt and
Agnes Duane; Bassoon: Engrid Erickson;
Kettle drums: Catherine Hutch; Bass
Viol: S. Lubwitz; Flute: M. North.
Vocal selections will be rendered by M.
Toledo. It is rumored that these girls be-
came homesick again; they've been visit-
ing here for many years now'."
The notes continue from here: —
"A file must be created: one especially
adapted for unlimited correspondence.
Esther Berg will achieve this.
"The master bridge players of our
group will be Helen Paul and Bea White,
who have mastered everyone's technique
— and whose only competitors are Bea
Vanderhoop and Lillian Tani who play
'according to Hoyle.' Buddy will be near
at hand to serve as referee and waterboy.
"On some fine day there will be seen in
Paris a group of chattering young women
on a sight-seeing tour. They will be dis-
tinguished by a tall girl — none other than
our friend, Spencer. The group will be
comprised of 'Dick,' Lu, Ev and — a few
paces behind — Don, still calling 'Wait for
me.' Something tells me they're searching
"Millicent and Beth will have invent-
ed a suitcase which will be light, conven-
ient and collapsible. It will resemble the
shape of a book so that the necessity of
answering the tiresome question, 'Where
are you going?' may be eliminated.
'By the time Choris is thirty-five we
hope that she will have revealed to all col-
lege students, her secret of poise, calmness
and that delicate twang of pronunciation.
"The smart sorority house across the
street from dear old F. N. S. will be
matroned by Dot Gorman and Betty
Sails. It will be designed especially for
Milford girls, that they may enjoy the
social side of our school life. Pauline Par-
rah and Annette Kay will act as hostesses.
"Lu Balkam will specialize in dress de-
signing, her famous pyjama letter brought
her into the limelight. Her favorite topic
deals with The Blond; from Platinum to
"We sense that Fran Metcalf will apply
at West Point as Taps Bugler. We think
she's successful, more power there!
"The National Press will make an ex-
ception on their staff and employ one
woman, Eunice Bardwell. Her first train-
ing in collecting news items was in the
"The Misses MacDevitt and Eisenhauer
will become prominent in aeronautics, and
there they'll surely help raise the morale
of Framingham. Other outstanding pilots
are M. Amato, D. Colburn and Mary
Eleanor Wetherbee. These latter will de-
vote one day a week taking passengers
free — the faculty of F. T. C. will be hon-
ored as first guests.
"We fear that Emily will still be tak-
ing attendance in Chorus — by a much
more practical method, of course — quite
similar to a punch-clock system.
"The C. R. Line is springing up every-
where. Nice, big busses will be driven by
careful, competent conductors. Doris Cad-
rett and Carolyn Rice are the best drivers
and the most frequent passengers are
Nancy Sheean, Edith Whittaker and

FEATURES OF ASSEMBLY AND CHAPEL
October 26, 1931 — Mrs. Catherine Osborne, Director of the Boston Students' Union
gave a very delightful talk: "The Romance of Fabrics," a story of India and her
costumes. Many beautiful fabrics were displayed, some over two hundred years old.
November 2 — Each year finds us anticipating with something of a thrill the coming of
the Hampton Institute Quartet of Hampton, Virginia, to entertain us with Negro
spirituals and melodies. "Mighty Lak' a Rose" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"
are old favorites. This fall November second was our lucky day and, needless to
say, we all did our best to register appreciation of the Quartet.
November 9 — Dr. William A. Knight of the Plymouth Congregational Church in
Framingham inspired us with a talk on "The Song of the Syrian Guest," a book
of which Dr. Knight is the author.
November 16 — The Myrtle Jordan Trio again entertained us and were welcomed as
always. Their music was a delight to hear. The program included a composition
by Miss Jordan.
November 16-22 — Book Week — Miss Ritchie introduced the advent of this week by
presenting to the student body several books — some gifts from members of the
faculty. "Better read the best books first else there may not be time to read them
all" was one fine quotation given by a faculty member. Byrd's "Little America"
and Rachel Field's works were introduced to us by Miss Carter. At the end of the
week we all had an increased desire to be well-read.
November 23 — Mr. Frank W. Wright, Deputy Commissioner of Education, lectured on
"Teachers and Teaching." "Give the child the power to use his mind" has been
the motto adopted by Mr. Wright's interested audience.
November 30 — Although it was impossible to have Mrs. Carl L. Schrader, President
of the Massachusetts Federation of Women's Clubs, with us during book week, we
were, nevertheless, very glad to welcome her to Framingham at this time and we
enjoyed her topic: "Love of Literature." She aroused our interest in the foremost
biographers, poets and authors.
December 7 — Mr. L. R. Talbot, Educational Field Agent of the Massachusetts Audu-
bon Society, gave a fine lecture on "Birds and Their Relation to the Common-
wealth" and showed us lantern slides of many. He asked us to teach and influence
children to protect and defend birds for economic and aesthetic reasons.
December 14 — Miss Alma Porter, Assistant Supervisor of Physical Education of the
State Department, brought a message to us as prospective teachers. She presented
an interesting discussion on "Health and Its Relation to Teaching."
December 16-23 — The Christmas spirit prevailed this week. Members of the Fine
Arts Club and the choir presented tableaux of the Annunciation and Nativity.
The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Garland, gave a very inspirational
candlelight service. Van Dyke's "Keepin' Christmas" was read to us in Chapel
the morning before vacation and we left for the holidays with the desire to "keep
Christmas" at home.
January 4, 1932 — "Two Ways" by Lyman Abbott was read to us by Miss Kingman
and many New Year's resolutions were renewed in our hearts.
January 11 — Nancy Byrd Turner, poet and author, was our guest speaker on this
day. Her talk was, "A poet tells her own tale." Everyone enjoyed both her poetry
and her rendition of it and the hour quickly sped by.
January 18 — Mr. Ray O. Wyland, Head of the Educational Department of Boy
Scouts of America, talked to us on the relationship of Boy Scouting to Home
February 1 — Arthur B. Lord, Supervisor of Educational Research and Statistics, spoke
about what the state is doing for its physically and mentally handicapped children.
February 15 — We were greatly honored by the presence of a distinguished American
poet, Edwin Markham. His poems "The Man with the Hoe" and "Lincoln,
the Man of the People" are well known to us all. It was to our great delight
that, after a number of other poems, he read "Washington" for the first time in
public. We certainly wish to express our gratitude to Student Government who
obtained Mr. Markham.
February 15-19 — Members of the student body — Elementary girls — presented each
morning a short talk on some period in the life of Washington. The series com-
prised a life history of him which is of interest to know during this year dedicated
to honor him.
February 29 — Mrs. Lewis Johnson, Chairman of the Educational Committee of the
Massachusetts League of Nations Association, was the speaker. She gave an
enlightening talk on the League of Nations: telling of its origin and its success
thus far. She also discussed it with relation to Japan and China.
March 7 — The Y. W. C. A. presented as their guest speaker Mrs. Francis Sayre,
daughter of former President Wilson. She discussed Disarmament, presenting it
to us in its relation to the youth of today, who are to be the leaders of tomorrow.

lectured on "Washington, The School Teacher of the Nation." Dr. Hart is
President of the Massachusetts Bicentennial Commission and Historian of the

through the efforts of the Student Government Association. He gave us a fine
lecture on the requirements of good citizenship.

E. S. Schaeffer was presented by the Dress Appreciation class assisted by Faculty
and Students — many of the garments modelled were made by the students.

and accompanied Miss Elsie Byrd, soloist, in a most interesting and unusual
musicale. Mrs. Green delighted her audience with some reminiscences of contacts
and experiences she has had in connection with her music.
April 14 — Mrs. Grace Morrison Poole lectured on the South American trip which she
made last summer. We remember well the one which she gave us last year on her
European travels, and in the same way on this occasion her talk proved most
vital, and her personal anecdotes and descriptions of absorbing interest. Mrs. Poole
is confidently expected to be elected president of the National Federation of
Women's Clubs in the coming elections.
May 23 — Miss Margaret Slattery in her talk on the subject of "I Want To Be My-
self" — made a universal appeal to all and we expect to profit from the substance
of v/hat she had, in so interesting a manner to tell us.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
THROUGH the interest and co-operation of the Council and Student Body the
accomplishments of the Association have marked, very definitely, steps of ad-
vancement and improvement.
This year marks the inauguration of the Budget Plan into the scheme of things
here. It is a plan worked out by council committees of previous years. This new-
experiment has justified itself. It has been both an economy to the students and an
assurance of well-attended school functions, since over four-fifths of the school mem-
bership availed themselves of this new opportunity.
The only informal, double dance of the year was given by the Student Govern-
ment Association in October. Financially, it was so successful that we were able to
be more generous than formerly at Christmas: gifts to the Framingham Associated
Charities and to the Hampton Institute were timely, and appreciated.
We were exceedingly fortunate in having as speakers and entertainers during the
Monday Assembly period: Edwin Markham, the Poet: Ex-Mayor Childs of Newton:
and the Weber Quartet.
The idea of the development of a college paper has been fostered by the As-
sociation. We are gratified to follow the work and results of the very competent staff
under the leadership of Marie Blaikie, Editor-in-chief, who has been made a member
of the council.
During the year extensive revision of the handbook has been accomplished.
Mass meetings in which the students have voiced their opinions on matters of
student concern, have been held during the spring term.
Although many matters which the students feel perhaps should be discussed and
settled upon by the council come under the category of affairs of the administration,
there is a very definite need and place for this student governing body which is yearly
becoming greater and mere representative.

THE GATE POST
FOR many years the faculty, students and alumnae of Framingham have hoped
that sometime a school paper might be established with the purpose of forming a
definite bond between the alumnae and college, strengthening the interests and re-
lationships between the commuters and boarding students, and arousing a new literary
interest in the college. The idea originated many years ago with Mr. Frederick Ried
of the art department and resulted, not in a periodical newspaper, but in the establish-
ment of our present year book, "The Dial."
Probably few students realize how much time and effort was spent by certain or-
ganizations of the college before such a possibility might be placed before the student
body. The five English teachers formed a committee, with Miss Gerritson as chairman
in an attempt to change the idea of a newspaper from something vague to something
Meanwhile the Student Government Council had been working on the same idea
and soon the two committees combined to work together on the growing prospect.
We must not forget the "Hill Top News." Probably it was that organization
which stimulated so much interest in a college newspaper. We add that the "Hilltop
News" left the sum of twenty dollars to the Student Government Organization for the
use of the newspaper.
Three issues of the Gate Post have been published since its establishment in Feb-
ruary. 1932. We believe that it is another new feature which will become permanent
through the interest and efforts of everyone connected with F. T. C.

THE CLASS AND CLUB COUNCIL
THE Class and Club Council was organized in the school year of 1928-29, for
the purpose of bringing together the leaders of the school clubs and classes so that
there might be active co-operation among the various organizations of the
school, and to carry on the social activities of the school.
The members of this council consist of a president, secretary and treasurer, and
each class and club president.
This fall we planned the activities of the school year at our house-party which
was held at Riverbank Lodge. We also arranged the calendar for club meetings. Plans
for the various classes and clubs were discussed.
Our meetings are held regularly the second Tuesday of each month.
Our main activity this year was a spring formal dance in May.
In the spring the council elect is invited to join the council at its week-end
house-party. At this time the new officers become acquainted with the responsibilities
which will be theirs the following year.
Our school activities this year have been most successful and we wish to thank
both faculty and students for their interest and co-operation.

THE Chemistry Department alone of all the departments at Framingham Teach-
er's College is organized on an honor system plan. It is headed by a Council and a
Sub-council. It began as an experiment under Student Government, but was so
successful that it later was more completely organized under a constitution and its
own council and assumed charge of all matters in the Chemistry Department. The aim
of the Council is to promote student development and co-operation.

FRAMINGHAM MUSICAL CLUBS
THE Framingham Musical Clubs constitute an organization which offers to its
members participation in Glee Club, Orchestra and Choir. These clubs, both in-
dividually and collectively, strive throughout the year's activity to fulfill their
purpose, i. e., to gain an understanding and appreciation of good music and to add
something of beauty and richness to the lives of others.
Christmas week was an active one. The Choir sang in the Fine Arts Club Christ-
mas tableau. Glee Club and Orchestra presented a most inspiring program at the Candle-
March 1 1th was the date of the Annual Concert. Two soloists, trumpet and piano,
were features of the event.
In January the Clubs gave a joint concert with M. I. T. Musical Clubs followed
by a dance for members.
Throughout the year the clubs have contributed to various events. A small group
from Glee Club and Orchestra entertained at an anniversary meeting of the D. A. R.
The Glee Club group sang at the Y. W. C. A. Christmas Vesper Service. Orchestra
played at a meeting of the Framingham Women's Club. At Thanksgiving time and on
Arbor Day Glee Club sang appropriate music. In May a representative group from Glee
Club and Orchestra presented a Bicentennial program at a conference of superinten-
dents held at Bridgewater. And in June the clubs will participate in the Commence-
ment week program. Choir will sing for Baccalaureate and Glee Club and Orchestra
will give a concert on Horace Mann terrace the evening of Class Day.
The Choir has sung at Chapel on Tuesday mornings throughout the year and
added something of inspiration to the exercises. It is the intention of the Clubs to sup-
plement the gowns in possession of Choir with gowns for the entire group of twenty
The activity of these Clubs necessitate a great deal of faithful and hard work on
the part of members, but compensation is adequate in fulfillment of purpose, satisfac-
tion resulting from commendable accomplishment and real enjoyment and there have
been social good times — in an afternoon tea early in the year and in the informal outing
Our successful year, as we deem it, we owe in large measure to Miss Garland and
to Mr. Archibald — our musical directors for first and second semesters, respectively. We
appreciate that from them we received the best of training and the utmost of sympathy.
To Mr. Ried we feel grateful for help and suggestions in his capacity of faculty
business advisor during the first semester of the school year.

FINE ARTS CLUB
THE major aim of the Fine Arts Club this year has been the reorganization of the
club into three main divisions consisting of a literary, drama, and an art group.
Our main project has been to remodel a studio in May Hall Attic. This
should be completed in June, and is something which will give, we hope, to all
the members a great deal of pleasure, and a fitting atmosphere in which to work.
A tea in October proved very successful and helped a great deal in our member-
November was the scene of a most delightful costume party, and the artistic
decorations were worthy of much praise.
"Why the Chimes Rang" was an impressive Christmas play which was sponsored
by the Fine Arts Club in connection with the Y. W. C. A. bazaar.
Miss Carter gave a very pleasing book review in February. The literary group
brought us this interesting program.
"You and I" by Philip Barry was chosen for the annual Fine Arts Play and
presented April 15th. This always proves to be one of the main social events of the
The bridge dinner at the Framingham Country Club always closes the ac-
tivities of the club and is anticipated with much pleasure.
Although our club has spent most of its time this year in reorganization, we hope
each member has received some profit and enjoyment from it, and that members of
the club may benefit next year by our efforts.
We wish to express our appreciation to all members of the faculty and student
body who have helped to make this year a successful one.

OUR Athletic Association this year has endeavored to arrange a program of sports
which might appeal in some phase to every girl. Individual interests have been
considered because we believe that every girl must have an interest in at least one
type of sport. Basketball, baseball, tennis, hiking, hockey and volley ball were on the
program; and skating and swimming were sponsored by the Association.
During senior week in September a hike for the seniors and their freshmen sisters
was sponsored by the Association.
Our first event of the year was the annual "weenie" picnic. This was followed by
Harvard and Yale mass meetings at which each group of girls elected their respective
committees for H-Y week-end.
The annual Harvard-Yale week-end was greeted and carried through with the
usual amount of enthusiasm.
On December fourth, three delegates were sent to Westfield to the Athletic Con-
ference held there for Massachusetts Normal Schools.
The Stunt Show, an annual event, was very much of a success. Each class pre-
sented an individual stunt and variety was therefore in order. And the faculty, represent-
ing manager and clientele of the last word in a Beauty Shoppe elicited a hilarious and
appreciative response from the audience.
Our final event which completes the activities for the year is the awarding accord-
ing to achievement of numerals, letters, and certificates to those who have earned them
by participation in the various sports.
As THE DIAL goes to press the members of A. A. are looking forward to the Play
Day at Bridgewater to which F. T. C. girls have been invited.

THE LOUISA A. NICHOLASS HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
THE Home Economics Club was organized at Framingham in 1924. Our purpose
is to bring together Home Economics Club students so that they may keep in
touch with current topics of Home Economic interest, and to provide an organ-
ization about which school activities related to Home Economics center. The club is
affiliated with the State, New England, and American Home Economics Associations.
We started our club activities by a membership drive day which included a tea in
In November the club sponsored a waffle breakfast, which was enjoyed by all stu-
dents of the school as well as club members.
December 5th two delegates were sent to the fall meeting of the New England
Home Economics Association held in Boston. They brought back interesting short re-
views of the lectures and gave us an idea of what the meetings were like.
This year we were very fortunate to have Dr. Robert H. Richards, a well known
scientist, and the husband of Ellen H. Richards, talk to the club members about her
life, and show us some interesting pictures of her.
International Night was held March 4th and was a successful and interesting
In April the Massachusetts Home Economics Association met at Framingham
and we were honored in helping to entertain them.

students in all possible ways. This year it has held regular monthly meetings at

at a tea. Somewhat later Miss Cummings gave an illustrated talk on Iceland for the

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
THIS year the Y. W. C. A. has undertaken a new policy and has introduced a
new phase into its program here at Framingham. When certain Cabinet members
and advisors met at Wellesley last fall to make plans for the year, they spent a
great deal of time trying to find a way to give every individual an opportunity to get
what she wanted from Y and to give something worthwhile to the student body as a
whole. To do the former the membership was divided into five groups. Five leaders
were suggested and five girls offered to help in organizing the plans.
The first undertaking was to discover what the members wanted and then to find
an opening through which to obtain it. Since that time about twenty "discussions" have
been held to which anyone was welcome and from which some very worthwhile things
have evolved. One of the latter was the Christmas Vesper Service held at the little Epis-
copal Church and to which the entire student body was invited. Another was the cheery
visit made at the Old Ladies' Home to sing and read to them and to wish them a Merry
To accomplish the second intent of bringing something worthwhile to the student
body the club presented Mrs. Francis B. Sayre. daughter of Woodrow Wilson, at a
Monday afternoon assembly. The subject of her address was "International Relations."
Everyone enjoyed the pleasant hour spent listening to Mrs. Sayre. Afterwards a tea was
served in her honor to which the faculty and members of the Y. W. C. A. were invited.
In addition to various meetings Y had a "go-to-church Sunday" at the beginning
of the year, ran a very successful Christmas Bazaar and sent delegates to conferences and

THE THOMAS A'KEMPIS CLUB
THE Thomas A'Kempis Club of Framingham Normal School is a club for the
girls of the Catholic faith. This club was formed in 1918 to take the place of the
various Catholic clubs to which the girls belonged at home, to provide a means
whereby the girls might get together to discuss common problems and also to bring
them together socially.
Our club is affiliated with the Federation of College Catholic Clubs which con-
sists of over one hundred student clubs throughout the United States and Canada. We
are represented at all of the meetings of the New England Province which are held in
Boston every month. In the fall we conducted a formal dance with three of the other
clubs of the province. One of our members attended the National Convention which
was held in New York last July.
We are kept in close contact with the clubs by means of the "Newman News," the
official publication of the Federation, which every member of the A'Kempis receives
Our meetings are held the second Thursday of each month either at St. Bridget's
Rectory or at the church. The programs of our meetings have been alternately social
and business. Father Dunford, our chaplain, has given us many instructive talks.
We hope that the A'Kempis Club will continue to keep up the good spirit, loy-
alty and cooperation that it has shown this past year.

THE day of the Harvard-Yak basketball game was the most exciting game of all
the year at Framingham Teachers College — and is never to be forgotten ... A
day which brought new adventure to the freshmen. A day in which sophomores
and juniors forgot all else excepting the urge root for either the crimson or the blue. A
day in which every senior received a thrill, and felt a pang, too — to realize it was her
last year for active participation. A day that brought back eager alumnae to share in the
The school is divided: 500 girls have taken sides and, in turn, marched into the
gym, a gymnasium where crimson stands for Harvard and blue for Yale, where a Har-
vard song and cheer led by Lu Hathaway is answered with a song and cheer led by Dot
Edwards, from Yale.
At 3 o'clock all eyes turn to the door. At last! Here they come! 6 girls to fight for
Johnny Harvard, and 6 girls to defend the name of Eli Yale.
Now for 32 minutes of exciting play. Time in at the whistle — A quarter — Halves
— Game! Score!! It is so close the referee counts twice. A victory for Harvard! A clean
game played by two well-matched teams —
Later, the grand Finale — the Banquet — where a merry time was had by all and
good fellowship reached its zenith.

THE Harvard-Yale hockey game was indeed a fit starter for the day. The two
teams flanked by their supporters, dressed in their respective "colors," marched
down Union Avenue to the Athletic Field. Harvard lined up on one side; Yale
on the other.
Amidst songs and cheers two well-trained teams line up on the field ready for
action — Bully! The game is on — What speed — action — playing! With clever dribbling
and skillful passes the ball is manipulated about that field as it never has been before.
Then a last smashing goal — and victorious Yale team is ready to lead the snake dance
back to "the hill."
The all-round F at F. S. T. C. is awarded to those students who, from active par-
ticipation and superior ability in athletics, have earned 900 A. A. points.
* To those Seniors who have 1,000 or more points accredited to their records the
certificate is presented.

CLASS basketball started off with a bang immediately after Christmas vacation.
Practice was held four nights a week with a large number of girls competing for
the honor of being on the class teams. Finally the teams were chosen and the
series started Feb. 1st. After five weeks of playing the seniors finished with the honors,
thus completing their 4th year of championship play.

Hockey, loved by one and all,
Is popular throughout the fall;
It furnishes keen competition
For all of us who have ambition.
You're a half or a full or an inner or wing,
And you dash down the field at the whistle's loud B-r-r-ing!
The jab, thrust and dribble you'll use as you play,
And it helps out to practice a little each day.
You'll get some bangs: perhaps a bruise;
You won't always win, but — you won't always lose.
It's all in the game, a lively one —
Come on out and play; — it's loads of fun!
IN Spring and Fall, tennis surpasses all in filling in our leisure hours. We. on The
Hill, had the unusual opportunity of witnessing a brilliant match played by Mrs.
Wightman, Mrs. Corbiere, and Lee and Mianne Palfrey. The tennis enthusiasts
were fortunate in receiving helpful pointers from Mrs. Wightman and in playing with
these noted tennis stars.
This Fall, the doubles tournament met with much enthusiasm as testified by the
unusually large number of contestants. Marion Cragg and Phyllis Lindstrom were the
The singles tournament is held in the Spring. Doris Edwards holds the title for
the 1931 tournament.
You may not be fashioned on basketball lines,
Nor yet have the volley ball craze;
You may not be "stocky" enough to play hockey
Nor in tennis keep out of the "haze."
Swimming and baseball you may have no taste for
Yet, when you feel dull, use this "psych"
Cast aside work and care; for the fresh air prepare —
Get out-of-doors and enjoy a good hike.
HORACE MANN HALL
DURING this past year members of every class have lived here in Horace Mann
Hall. To have a large number of Freshmen distributed throughout the dorm,
was a novel and very successful arrangement. They entered most whole-heart-
edly into the spirit of friendliness which has always characterized the atmosphere of
During the year many informal good times were had in the living room. The
mention of cider and doughnuts immediately recalls to mind the Hallowe'en party.
And the Christmas party is not soon to be forgotten either. Who could but be merry
on that night with good Saint Nicholas (and an excellent impersonator was Dr.
Meier!) bringing cheer and good will to our hearts.
The new radio, which was presented to Horace Mann Hall early in the fall, has
been enjoyed a great deal by every member of the house.
To Miss Swan, our house-mother, and Nurse Robbins we feel grateful. They
have been very kind and have shown a great deal of interest in us all.
We will always cherish memories of Horace Mann, and future years will find
us returning to visit it and reminisce about our happy days here.

students mopping up the floor,
If we can bake our bread while all around are
If we can mix a batter and then bake it while girls are cleaning windows by the score,
If we can wait and not be bored while waiting as our cake sinks gently in the pan,
If we can take the mixture from the oven and render hits from tuneful Mary Ann.
If we can make our culinary efforts the envy of the ordinary cooks
We'll never need to mix another batter, and we can start a bonfire with the books.
If we can dream and not make dreams our master while making beds and cleaning up
the walls —
Our Herculean efforts will make the heart beat faster as we help to keep in order
If we can borrow words from Rudyard Kipling to write about the tasks at Crocker
Why not seize a few from Channing and sing of his symphonic clarion call —
"To live content, to study hard, to seek simplicity."
They weave their way through Crocker days, embodied in my symphony.

PEIRCE HALL SPEAKS
Many fond mem'ries on this page I've seen,
Written by girls who've done well —
But within my walls I hold cherished tho'ts
Only I, Peirce Hall, can tell.
With the entrance of Freshmen and return of the rest
In September — the year thirty-one;
With renewing of friendships and maktng of new,
My jovial year was begun.
Most of the first week was well taken up
With unpacking and fixing of rooms.
The end of the week brought the usual array
Of girls with dustpans and brooms.
The girls who were friendly helped those who were not
To work and to play with a will.
(And I "listened in" on many remarks
In favor of life "on the hill".)
Soon all were accustomed to life far from home
And buckled right down to their work.
Hospitable matrons — Misses Keith and Degere
Did their part — not a task did they shirk.
Many affairs went on in my midst —
Some serious, some hearty, and hale:
Dances and parties, house-meetings, and then,
The banquets — foremost, Harvard-Yale.
I've served as a home for these girls all my life —
As I pause to look back o'er the years
I feel happy and proud of the friendships they've made
And cherish their laughter and tears.
As my walls have resounded with laughter and mirth
All the years of my life "on the hill,"
May I always be silently proud of my girls
"Who work and who play with a will."
THE VOCATIONAL HOUSE
Up ere the dawn of day
With nine hungry mouths to feed —
For strong healthy girls and gay
This is the life indeed!
But weary hours of studying,
Crawling into bed very late
Lead to salt in the cocoa,
No baking powder in the cake.
Washing, sweeping and dusting,
Waiting on table 'twixt bites —
Next to classes we're hustling
To climb intellectual heights.
Then gathering round at twilight
To close the day with song,
We form a tired but happy group —
The Vocational Household throng.

MRS. AMIDON'S— 29 PLEASANT STREET
Up the hill from Mrs. Amidon's-
Full of glee and full of songs.
Come Peg and Florence and Lil,
The gay, the neat, and the still.
Trudging up the hill, we three,
Happy, singing, and carefree;
Both in sunshine and in rain
We climb the hill, just the same.
BARBER'S— 7 WINTER STREET
You're "looking for Barber's — "
Did I hear you say?
It's just over the hill
And not far away.
Simply down the hill
And turn to the right;
And there watching for you, I know,
Will be four faces bright.
Eleanor, Marion, Dottie and Anne
Will welcome you into their happy clan
To partake of their crackers, or foods that are sweet.
And you'll find it a quite unforgettable treat.
Miss Barber gives parties and — say are they good!
We have games, talk, and limericks, and food
Such as you've never tasted before;
'Cause food like she cooks can't be bought in a store.
Though sometimes we argue; it's only in fun.
And we make up again with a good-natured pun.
We always have studying right there on hand;
But that doesn't phase our merry band.
And when that's all finished and we hear ten ring
You can't hear a noise, not a single thing
Except a voice, saying in a tone sincere,
"Gee. Dot, I'm glad that we're living down here."

Act I — and only
A Busy Night
In a blue room a little girl in a bright red corduroy bathrobe is sitting on the
floor. She is cutting out a picture. All around her are newspapers and history pictures
— Mary is evidently celebrating the Bicentennial!
In the front room in which, incidentally, there are two lights, sits a ladylike
person at her desk. She holds a cotton ball in her hands and is busily engaged in
picking out the seeds. Eleanor is interested in Eli Whitney and his cotton gin!
Over the threshold is a large, cheerful room and on the bed, there lies a pure
Nordic-type lady propped up with many pillows. She is reading Warwick Deeping's
latest. A studious freshman sits at a table absently chewing a pencil-end while reading
a Lowell newspaper! If you have visited the house you no doubt have recognized
Ingrid and Marion.
Through the open door of the former room, a curly-headed miss is visible.
She is talking (evidently) to the two readers in the room beyond: but all the while
rapidly tracing maps of Greece — Sally, no doubt, has Greek myths on her mind.
(Wise mouse to himself) "Humph! What a heterogeneous group!"
MRS. JOHN HART'S— 22 GODDARD ROAD
The Home of the Happy H(e)arts
No wonder the Freshmen refused the dorms,
No wonder the students braved winter's storms —
A more home-like place couldn't be found
Than the home of the Harts in this little town.
Four of us — two Sophs, two Freshies —
Edith, Agnes, Marjorie, and Betty:
Each had her own art, and each did her part
In making up the social chart.

Those cosy rooms held happy scenes,
Also a student's many dreams;
And now as the end of good times draws near
We know we'll remember this one glad year.

DALTON'S— 34 MAIN STREET
On the eleventh of last September
In the broiling heat of the day,
Two Sophomores, one Junior and one Freshman
Came to Dalton's house to stay.
The Dorm soon lured the Freshman,
But the other three still remained
To climb the hill at break of day
Whether it snowed, or hailed, or rained.
Twas on rainy days that Amy shone
With gunboats on her feet;
But her room-mate shone in the midst of the night
With her nightmares, short and sweet.
Ev kept peace between the two,
When she had nothing else to do;
But her spare time was mostly spent
In finding where her cider went.
Then Nyda came with good intent
To show what study really meant;
But found that she must learn to shirk
When people eat instead of work.
Who wouldn't eat, when chocolate cakes —
The best that the House Mother makes —
Are served? — And now lo and behold!
I find my story is all told.
Seven little Sophs,
Down at McGrath's;
Retta had to leave
And then there were six.
Six little Sophs
Down at McGrath's
Rushed into breakfast
Just a little late.
Six little Sophs
Down at McGrath's
Appropriate the alcove
For their luggage of all sorts.
Six little Sophs
Down at McGrath's
Getting up a spread
Just before bed!
Six little Sophs
Down at McGraths:
Dot, Claire, and "Bunny",
Marge. Syl, and "Pokey".
■137 MAYNARD ROAD
MRS. EAGAN'S— MAYNARD ROAD
At Eagan's — down on Maynard Road,
We have the best of fun.
I can't begin to calculate
The crazy things we've done.
Of course, it must look queer to see
Us trailing to the "Dorm"
A little after seven, but —
We must run true to form.
We felt disturbed when we forgot
Half of our junk, until
We grew used to carrying napkins
And laundry up the hill.
But soon we lost our friend, Maybell,
She couldn't stand our place —
So she left her room-mate, Zeze,
Installed as the "Lone Ace."
Zeze then called on Agnes
And her room-mate, Weesie Clarke,
And what three girls can't do
At Eagan's — after dark!
We park ice cream and fudge cake
On the piazza roof,
(A satisfactory ice chest) 'though
We wish it were rain proof.
Of course, we'd really like to dwell
On campus all the time:
We'd like three rooms at Horace Mann —
Oh, that would be sublime!
But since that is impossible,
You can easily see
We're glad to live in any part
Of our dear F. T. C.
A very lonesome Freshie to McBride's did come,
But it didn't take her long to find that it meant home.
Although the whole year through she remained all alone,
There she found lots of happiness and loads of fun.

ODE TO EDWIN MARKHAM
We thank you, poet, for to-day,
We thank Thee, Father, for the poet
Who has the gift to say
What we would say — if we but could
Describe the sky, the sea, the wood.
How gratifying it must be
To think above and nearer Thee,
To voice the things you feel,
To steal the beauty of the world
And make it precious as a pearl.
We thank you, poet, for to-day,
We thank Thee, Father, for the poet
Who teaches us to pray,
And sets our hampered spirits free
To see the world in ecstasy.
Night steals over the hilltops
When the afterglow of the sun
Fades on the far horizon
And brings peace to everyone.
Peace, bringing content and rest,
Banishing sorrow from a breast,
Taking all care and setting it free
Into safe eternity.
Clear, matchless beauty of the night
That makes a heart leap with delight.
A silent prayer escapes from me —
May I ever thankful be.
You may hold that poetry
Is one of God's great gifts
Given to certain favored ones —
To make words sing and lift.
If you walk and talk with God
And pray on bended knees,
If you gather lilac sprays
And sense the grace in trees,
If you see beauty in the dawn
And love the stormy sea,
Surging wild, in foamy gusts,
Across the rock-walled quay.
If you believe that one who dies
Attains a higher goal
You shall not envy gift of rhyme —
You've poetry in your soul.
Once I made a carriage out of a cabbage head:
Its four beet wheels were bright and shining red;
I tore the silken hair from a growing ear of corn
And made golden reins for the carriage to be drawn;
I chose noble field mice for their gallant deeds
And gave to them the honor of being royal steeds;
I found a white grub of very high esteem
And placed him in the coach as driver of the team;
I looked for passengers, and found a bride and groom —
A bumble-bee and lady-bug upon their honey-moon;
Off to the sea-shore I had them drawn,
Out, and across my dew-wet lawn.
[ 151 ]
JUST FOR ME
Mother put the window close by my bed
So I could watch the squirrels without lifting my head;
In and out the branches and up and down the tree —
I wonder if they really are performing just for me?
Out thru my window I can see the birds at dawn
Fluffing their feathers and perching for a song;
Robins and orioles, and once a chick-a-dee.
I wonder if they really do dress up just for me?
Mother leaves the curtain up when dusk comes down
So I can watch the shiny stars circle 'round the town;
From out behind the steeple and across the grassy lea —
I wonder if they really do twinkle just for me?
Upon my dining table I've laid my damask white,
I've set my thinnest china and goblets, shining bright.
He loves the smell of bayberry; I love its candlelight —
And the flame burns steadily for our silver wedding night.
A book to read
And a quiet spot —
An hour to spend
On random thot
Instills in me
A wish to be
Writing — on "humanity";
A wish that some day
I might bring
A newer twist
To some old thing —
As others read
Might seem to meet
Some inner need.
ENVOI - 1932
When we come to the end of our senior year,
To the shrine of our hopes and our thoughts.
To the last few days when the parting nears —
What joys these years have brought!
Do we think what the end of our senior year
Can mean to our school-mates true —
When the sun goes down on those times so dear
We will dream of these days with you.
Here at Framingham we pledge as one
Our motto — "Live to the Truth" —
To friendships lasting till life is done,
Friendships made in the days of youth.
Now the hands are clasped and we say adieu
To the school so dear to us all —
At last we stand where the trail is new,
We answer the future's call.
Kay Rockwood, '32.
To the Tune "Perfect Day"
Guide us, Father, guide us in the coming days;
Our motto "Live to the Truth" shine forth in immortal rays.
Oh "Class of thirty-two" reach upward to your goal —
"Live clean in thought, word, act" is written on our scroll.
Here on our College Hill, the heart of memories dear;
Oh bring us all together year after year.
Renew in us those loving ties that bind us fast;
May our friendships at dear F. T. C. forever last.
Father, bless our Alma Mater, for to-day
Her guidance, too, we ask in all our work and play.
Now with loyalty and trust so staunch and true
May we attain success, dear Framingham, through you.
Kay Rockwood, '32.
With gratitude we leave you,
Dear college on the hill;
With loyalty unending
Our hearts forever fill.
"Live to the Truth" our torch shall be,
A light along the way
To share with others, too, who seek
The guidance of its ray.
When day is done and dusk appears
My thoughts go back thru the past years —
It is the good and not the ill
That makes up my memories of the "Hill."
Four years ago, in the early Fall
I began my life in Peirce Hall —
A life so full of work and play
That the year appeared to fly away.
Summer passed — I was a Sophomore, then —
Oh, memories of that Sophomore Chem!
Escapades of our waitress clan
In the north corridor of Horace Mann!
Next came the famous house-practice year —
Happy days of cooking in Crocker, here,
And teaching in a nearby place —
That year certainly was an Ace!
Now, Seniors, dignified and filled with sorrow —
For we graduate on the morrow —
We shall leave; others will come
To continue with our school work and fun.
Dusk is past and night has come —
Reminiscing time is done —
But whatever life gives us of pleasure or pain
These F. T. C. memories will always remain.
ON Wednesday, September sixteenth, the year of our Lord nineteen-hundred and
thirty-one, "the Greenies" arrived — with a song in their hearts. (We hope they
did!) It wasn't long before they were settled and going around with that grand
air of bravado — but we wonder how many felt like "wee timorous little mousies"?
Thursday was just a day to unpack trunks and incidentally to find out about
Friday — not just another day, ah no — a big- event planned by those "noble"
upper classmen, the Seniors. The event: — an eight mile hike plus a picnic supper. Now,
this was a joyous time as it gave everybody a chance to become acquainted. After a
very delicious supper the "Greenies" gave a series of acts (at the request of the Seniors) .
A prize was awarded the best performance which was entitled "The Gathering of the
Nuts." The prize was greatly appreciated (being to carry the milk cans back to Peirce
Saturday brought an event of a different nature: A theatre party for the
By the time Monday arrived it was deemed necessary to lay down a few laws for
the "Greenies." The laws were as follows: —
1. Please be careful about leaving the Assembly Hall after Chapel and Assembly
— Freshmen last.
2. Please do not leave the dining room at night until after the Seniors have left.
3. When an upperclassman and a Freshman are going through a passageway the
Freshman is to wait and go last.
4. Last, but not least, all Freshmen must wear green berets for one semester.
This left the "Greenies" gasping but at the end of two weeks there was a "slump"
and it was again necessary to call the Freshmen together — and this time the Seniors
were more drastic in their measures. A few of the "Greenies" were put through their
paces with the student body acting as a court of approval and then all the former rules
were enforced and the following additional ones put into effect for a period of two
1. No cosmetics to be used.
2. All hair to be worn without a wave.
3. Black cotton stockings to be worn.
When the two weeks were up routine life on the hill had absorbed everybody, so
that there wasn't any more time for things like that!
— Honestly, "Greenies," wasn't it fun, and didn't you enjoy it? We did! —

Have you ever had it grab you
And get you by the throat,
And stop your nose from breathing,
And then to have it gloat
When it has you on your back in bed
And you cannot do a things'
When there's something pulling on your head
And your nose is bruised and sore,
Have you ever had it get you
And make you weak and mean?
When the days creep on like decades
And there's eons in between,
When at night the windows rattle
And the doors creak on their sills?
When the night things are all present
And down your spine are sending chills?
And you see the things you might have done —
If you'd not been so bold
You'd have kept your self-resistance
'Gainst that cowardly germ of the "cold."
REMEMBER THE DAY IN CROCKER
When the chicken stock went down the drain pipe into the laundry tub?
When the gelatine dessert was used as rinsing water for a dish cloth?
When the ice cream was packed minus that slight detail — salt?
When the faculty dessert was served at a student table?
When we learned that curry powder was used to kill cockroaches?
When the seeds in the brioche were taken for specks and were carefully removed
from the dough?
When Gold Dust was put in the cracker meal jar?
When Miss Hall mistook, "two legged mice" for "four legged mice?"
When prune whip was flavored with onion juice?
When a cup of salt was used in a cake instead of sugar?
When "Wyandotte" was taken for bread flour?
When the chief flavoring in the cheese biscuits was cayenne? (Did they burn?)
If you hear a noise,
A frightful din,
You'll know the spit game's
About to begin,
A dash for a table
There are only two.
The ones who are able
And fastest, too,
Are the ones who "spit"
The evening through.
The game is fast
And noisy, too,
But it sure is fun
If you win or lose.
Some play slow,
Some play fast,
But one and all
Stick to the last.
Then at 7:30 rings a bell:
Everyone stops with a yell.
Game's over for to-nite —
Bet I'll beat you tomorrow nite!'

[ 165 ]
Mr. Workman (discussing theories on the origin of wheels, received the sugges-
tion of "an apple") : — "You never saw anyone riding on an apple, did you?"
Stage Whisper: — "But they do slide on banana peels."
And then Mr. Workman wanted to know "what we'd do without wheels any-
way" — I wonder.

RULES FOR PLAYING BRIDGE
1. Delay your bid until 2 or 3 ask you about it.
2. Always bid in your weakest suit, your partner may have them.
3. Always lead an ace whether it's your lead or not.
4. Trump your partner's ace to be doubly certain of the trick.
5. Eat sticky candy between hands so the cards will not slip too easily.
6. Ask "What are trumps?" 3 or 4 times during the game to show your interest.
I WONDER WHY
1. Some Seniors commute?
2. E. Knox and Peg Kennedy like the M. I. T. Library?
3. Bea White got a "Brown" outfit this winter?
4. Some Seniors sleep so much?
5. Freshies don't offer to buy their "Senior sisters" valuable clothing folders?
6. We never see "Kitty" any more?
7. One person always gets a mortgage on Crockers pay station?
8. The Juniors bother to clean the small gas stove in Crocker after the clean-
ing Dot and Bergie gave it last year?

WISE FRESHMAN RESPONSE
"Well you know it makes a difference whose shoes the feet are on!"
Ruth Sampson, seeing the laundry bags in front of the room doors in H. M. H-
"If we leave our laundry here will they collect it?"
"REVIEW OF REVIEWS"

FACTS FROM FRESHIES
Miss Chase: — -"If molecules can be split into atoms and atoms can be broken
into electrons, can electrons be split up further?"
Buddy Landry: — "Well, they might try mailing some to Peirce Hall in a package
marked 'Fragile.' "
Miss Gardner: — "What is the highest type of animal life?"
Florence Cavanaugh: — "The giraffe."
Two very good reasons why the Elementary Course girls should know a few facts
concerning Household Arts: —
Dr. Meier: " — and we took the trout and skillet to the fire — "
Doris Hoffman: — "Oh Dr. Meier — what kind of a fish is a skillet?"
(When we told this to "Gin" Boucher she thought a skillet was some sort of
"Between Us Girls" —
Kay: — "I supplement my F. N. S. training by camp-cooking in the summer."
Anne: — "I get teaching experience at a summer playground."
"Bubbles": — -"I concentrate on how to make worthy use of leisure time."
Peg Moran fell sound asleep in Soc' Class one day and Bea Vanderhoop who was
sitting next to her poked her vigorously to awaken her. Mr. Workman suggested that
she be allowed to sleep if she really felt the need of it.
Contributed by Miss Ramsdell —
A history question was given the class to write upon. One boy wrote: — "I don't
know the answer — God alone does — Merry Christmas."
The paper came back: — "Zero for you — lOO'r for God — Happy New Year!"
The popularity of Dr. Foster's Lectures may be illustrated by the fact that one
rainy morning a tiny kitten found its way into a nutrition lecture, curled itself up on a
seat, found out what it wanted to know about protein requirements, amino acids, etc.,
and then walked nonchalantly out of the room.
"We stole softly, almost noiselessly, down the back stairs and rounded the last
graceful curve in those well trodden steps to behold the haven of all Crockerites. We
looked to right and to left and then proceeded in the direction of the larder. We stopped
to listen before entering and then went on to our destination and found that someone
had been there before us. So we peered cautiously into this, and into that, and then we
pounced upon a mouse — for we were Buster and the alley cat who live at Crocker — out
for a little mousing."
IN PHYSICS CLASS
Betty W. : — "Mr. Workman, will you please go through the grease trap?'
K. Riley: — "Mr. Workman, will you please run through the siphon pump?'
Mr. Archibald's remark is very appropriate here —
"This is a school of imagination."
Dot and Loretta, singing: — "How long will it last?"
Grace and Vicky from behind: — "What kind of seams on your skirt?"
Loretta: — "Do you know 'How long will it last'?"
Vicky: — "What, the seam?"
Lu Balkam (soliciting snaps for THE DIAL) to Vera Richardson: — "Vera, have
Vera (hesitating) : — "I'm sorry, Lu, — only hooks and eyes."
you any snaps' ?
Gwen Swanson: — "Betty, what's your favorite occupation ? "
Betty King: — "Taking care of the 'blinds'."
Ritta Roper: — "What's your idea of wasted tims?"
Flossie Courtis: — "Putting pepper in Claire Woods' pillow."
Ritta Roper: — "How's that?"
Flossie: — "She doesn't sleep on a pillow!"
Ruth Sampson can't get anything out of Ballyhoo —
And Mr. Archibald is looking for an interpreter for the same periodical.
Miss Kingman: — "Do you think that the music sounds right, Miss Hoitt? You
know more about music than I do."
Miss Hoitt: — '"Yes I do. Miss Kingman."
Will someone please enlighten Milly Heath as to what "goofer" feathers are?
(Saidie Howland is a good reference.)
Says Saidie (while looking at her legs) : — "Gee! my calves are getting positively
"A knowledge of bacteriology is necessary for sanity." — (Is it worth it?)
"A careful housewife will buy only wrapped foods."
"There was water standing in the sink." (And nobody offered it a chair!)'
"The whole experiment is done under 20 lbs. pressure." (We hadn't realized
the precise amount of pressure applied for the accomplishment of the experiment.)
"Calories are something found in sugar and cake."
"Make a dissolution." (No, you do it.)
"Absolutely sterile." (Absolutely?)

Milly Heath (while reciting in Ed. VII with Miss Coss) : — "In studying English

M. Auger (reporting on magazines found in Library) : — "The magazines are

And then there was the Freshman who slapped a corridor mate on the back after
10 P. M. on the night of Dec. 1 1th, and looked up to meet the astonished gaze of Miss

Hazel Walker: — "I ought to, I've been practicing all night."

TO THE H. A. STUDENT OF F. T. C.
Here's health to the girl who can dance like a dream,
And the girl who can pound the piano;
A health to the girl who writes verse by the ream
Or can tap with high C in soprano;
To the girl who can talk and the girl who does not,
To the saint and the little sinner:
But here's to the cleverest girl of the lot —
The girl who can cook a good dinner.

support; to the advertisers for their generous help; and particu-
larly to Mr. Ried, "our ever present help in trouble," for his per-
sonal interest and unfailing helpfulness in the publication of this
